Doctor Who in 'Flux'?: The Thirteenth Doctor from New Dawn to Final Days

By BAFTSS Science Fiction

You are warmly invited to attend the first event to be hosted by the BAFTSS Science Fiction and Fantasy SIG, dedicated to Doctor Who. This panel discussion is free to all and will take place online via Zoom on Wednesday 8 December at 18:30. You can register via Eventbrite.

This BAFTSS SFF event is partly a book launch for Doctor Who: New Dawn (recently published by Manchester University Press and edited by Brigid Cherry, Matt Hills and Andrew O'Day) and partly a chance to analyse the six-part series Doctor Who: Flux, which runs from October to December 2021. It features two contributors to New Dawn, Lorna Jowett (University of Northampton) and Matt Hills (University of Huddersfield), alongside Ross Garner (Cardiff University), who has previously worked with the Doctor Who production office. The panelists will deliver the following presentations:

  • Gender and Queerness in Doctor Who (Lorna Jowett)

  • The Thirteenth Doctor During (and After) Lockdown (Matt Hills)

  • Cardiff and Commerce: Doctor Who's Locations and Futures with Bad Wolf (Ross Garner)

After these initial presentations, everyone will have a chance to ask questions and participate in a wider discussion of both Flux and the soon-to-conclude 'Jodie Whittaker era' of Doctor Who.

We look forward to seeing you there!
